Unlocked iPhone’s are something which is usually loved by people who travel frequently. The benefits of buying an unlocked iPhone’s are many but most importantly you can use the unlocked iPhone 6 anywhere in the world on any carrier.
People who are willing to buy the iPhone 6 unlocked versions directly from the Apple’s website may have to wait for a month. Apple has not yet started selling the unlocked version of the iPhone 6. Apple took nearly a month to start selling the unlocked iPhone 5S after its release and this time it is expected to do the same.
Apple usually prefers to sell contract iPhone. This is because although the user has to pay in instalments, Apple also gets credited whenever the user makes a phone call using the iPhone which is under contract from the carrier (Verizon, AT&T, etc).
To those who are willing to buy the contract free iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models, T-mobile is the best option.
If purchased through AT&T, Sprint and Verizon, the user has to shell out an upfront $199. Where as if the user buys through T-Mobile, the price starts at $649. This is because the T-Mobile iPhone 6 is contract free. This means you can use the same iPhone on any SIM.
There are also reports that Apple may not use the term ‘unlocked iPhone’ any more. Whatever might be the case, the features of T-Mobile contract free and unlocked iPhone 6 are same.
Users who purchased through T-Mobile contract free option have already confirmed that they can use their smartphone on other carriers as well.
iPhone 6 contract free price starts at $649 for 16GB version. The 64GB and 128GB costs $749 and $849 respectively. The iPhone 6 Plus price starts at $749.
